Discover your new home
The University of Twente Pathway College offers different accommodation option to students new to the city.
After finalising your pathway and bachelor programme choices, accommodation is one of the most important decisions you will need to make. It’s vital that you feel happy and safe in your new home. We recommend you start booking early (from April onwards). The earlier you start the booking process, the surer you are to find a comfortable place to stay. Please note that room numbers are limited.
There’s a combination of public and private accommodation options available in Enschede. These are spread across the city, and we can advise on the options that are located on campus, or in the city centre – there’s an option that will suit you.
We strongly recommend you make use of TPC’s housing recommendations. We discourage travelling to Enschede without having secured a suitable place to live. Also having a permanent home address is a requirement to legally stay in the country.
